Never Say Goodbye is the second book in the Unfailing Love Series by Mandi Blake. I absolutely loved this book and the characters, Lindsey and Dakota. I liked how the author touches on two different topics 1) alcoholism/binge drinking and 2) leaving home. I do wish that the author focused more on the alcoholism than leaving home but other than that this story is very well written. I can't wait for the third book in the series!

Lindsey Payne returns to her hometown where she must face the man whose heart she broke when she moved away to pursue her dreams. This sweet story is about forgiveness, second chances at love, and having faith in God. The author brings Carson, GA to life with her beautiful descriptions of the country landscape. This heartwarming book was an easy read that I finished within two days. It’s easy to relate to Lindsey as she reconciles the sacrifices she made for dreams that no longer dazzle her. Man ...more

Another great book in the Unfailing Love series! Dakota and Lindsey’s story tells of forgiveness and love that truly never fails.

This is a wonderfully written inspirational novel about second chances. It's a beautiful heartwarming story about how when you fully turn your life over to God, He will work every thing out in His way and in His time. The author makes the story come to life with her words. You can feel all the emotions and see all the scenery. Even though this is book two, it can be read as a stand alone.

A highly emotionally charged love story. A love story full of regrets and mistakes made and of losing a one and only first love, one that neither of them ever recovered from. To finally getting the ending they both deserved.
Quite a drawn out story and it left me emotionally exhausted.

When I first read Mandi's debut novel, and the first novel in the Unfailing Love series, I found myself completely entranced in Addie and Declan's story. Their journey was turbulent, emotional, and faith filled, and I could barely bring myself to put the book down. However, throughout the entire story, I had such a soft spot for Dakota's character. I wanted to know what had driven him to the place he was currently in, and who the woman was who'd broken his heart so completely. When I found out t ...more

Mandi Blake's Never Say Goodbye is an inspirational romance set in rural Georgia. This is the second book in a series, but could definitely be read as a stand alone. I enjoyed it so much that I read it in two days. It is a sweet book on forgiveness and second chances. I have fallen in love with these characters and look forward to the next installment in the series.
*I was given a copy of this book by the author and this is my honest opinion.

This is my first book by this author and it will not be the last. This was such a touching story of regrets, friendships, love, loyalty and God. It was great getting to know Lindsay and Dakota. Both have past that they will have to deal with before they can contemplate a future with each other again. I enjoyed how God’s love for us was woven into their story.

I received this book from the publisher and the opinions expressed are entirely my own.

I was quickly drawn into the story, and the property on which Dakota built his house and barn was described so well that I could picture myself being there. I encourage you to try Book 1 - Just As I Am as well. It is not necessary in order to enjoy this book, but does help explain the backstory to a few characters in the group of friends. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because I felt the characters took too long up and be honest with each other about their feelings.

Just finished this sweet story about second chances. Isn't it wonderful that God gives us many 2nd chances?
I love the way God works things in His own timing not ours. Sometimes we may think it's forever or even longer than it seems but this story has a great ending!
I love how the author has portrayed jealousy. That is our worst enemy!!
Sometimes what we think is love is not how it's supposed to be. Some people just have a hard time showing their love or even saying it and withou

Mandi Blake brings a story of love, sacrifice, mistakes, forgiveness and commitment. The characters are well-developed and draw you into the story. I very much enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

First, I want to thank Mandi Blake for providing me this book so I can bring you this review.

Never Say Goodbye is the perfect title for Mandi Blake’s continuing sweet story in the Unfailing Love Series. I must admit I do have Bon Jovi’s song stuck in my head. Mandi tugged on my heart strings many of times in this book. Then again, she did with the last book too. This is one of the things I love about her writing-she touches your heart with her words.

In this book you see familiar faces and get

I just finished , oh my gosh , it so good ! What a beautiful message about our relationship with god that you worked into a beautiful romance .2nd chance romance with so much more . Took their broken hearts and under god’s direction brought peace , love , and forgiveness. It’s never too late to come home again and by home , “I mean to a loving Heavenly Father “ , because without him we can never have peace with anyone or ourselves.
Great job !
This book has it all ! The book draws the reader in

Fabulous read!

Mandi Blake! GOD BLESS YOU! I LOVE your books. First, they are christian romance, Second, very very interesting, hooked right from the first chapter. Third, has a little bit of action, or better still, suspense-filled. And fourth, keeps you longing for more. This is the second book of yours that I have read, so worth reading your books. Thank you for a GREAT job done. May the Lord bless you as you honor Him in your stories.

My thoughts...

Loved the book... brought back some old memories of my younger days... would recommend this book to anyone who loves ‘happily ever after’ romantic stories.

This was a good read. I liked the faith aspect, especially the repenting and getting right with God. It would have been better if Dakota had also done the same thing, especially with his binge drinking. Lindsey still needs to grow up and find out that the world doesn't revolve around her. Overall, it's a good story about going home again, and that things will work out if you let God have control, and stop trying to manipulate everything yourself.
